Had a great class at Icarus yesterday with the theme of “Monotangle Meets Bijou”. I introduced seven new patterns that we did on the Bijou tiles. It was a fun class which really focused on two ideas – new tangles and smaller paper.
When you begin your Zentangle journey, I think most of us find that “wow”, the paper is so small (3.5×3.5). Once you get into it, the size doesn’t seem to be an issue any more because you use your dots, border and string to make it manageable. So with this class, I wanted to show the same process exists for smaller tiles – many times starting with your four dots, border and string. (Today, because we created monotangles, we didn’t use strings.)
At the end of class, with not much time left, we took three patterns and put them on a Bijou (with four dots, border and string) – Footlites, Lollywimple and Diva Dance. Think they did a great job for a jiffy tile!
Next up – Zen Gems on April 30th!
